I've not posted for SO long. It's been really, really busy at work, what with the students finishing off their work, the Trades House show for the students and generally getting everything ready to get off to a flying start at the beginning of the next academic year.

More to follow.

happy days

It's been an exceptionally good day today. Not only was the weather really pleasant again, but it was the end-of-year show for my students. I didn't realise until about 2pm - the show opened at 6pm - how proud of them I am. They really have been exceptional this year and everyone who saw the show commented on the excellent quality of the work.

Two unrelated but lovely things also put me in a good mood: 1) a pair of old trousers which I wore to the opening yielded two well-washed £10 notes from one of the pockets, and; 2) There was home-made ginger beer in the fridge for me to drink with dinner.

Long may it continue!
